No it is not a bug. You need to run the libvirtd daemon before you can
use hardware virtualised machines. I would also advise against your
current workaround of running GUI apps as root. On F14 something like
this should resolve the error,

# chkconfig --level 35 libvirtd on # libvirtd on for runlevel 3 & 5
# service libvirtd start # starts libvirtd now

For F15 you will have to use the corresponding systemd commands. I
can't help you with that.
